Hello, all! My name is Eve and I am the mother of Eirik, 3 years old, and Eiden, 1 year and a month. Both are nursing.
Our relationship has evolved and continues to ebb and flow. I've heard the child-led weaning can be guided by mom, like introducing limits and suggesting ending the nursing relationship, versus the notion that CLW means totally hands-off by mom. I have also heard other mothers who nursed older toddlers/children say that sometimes they were hesitant to say their child was "weaned", even if he/she hadn't nursed in months, b/c they never knew when that particular child would ask to nurse again! I guess I might be looking forward to a "two steps forward, three steps back" approach to child-led weaning. Great to be here among other mothers who are choosing to honor their children and themselves in their breastfeeding and other relationships!

Cheers and see ya round these boards!
